Every Woman Wellness


This May, the ELLA Leadership Institute will kickoff it’s first ever LATINAS THINK BIG event, a TEDx-style conference featuring Latina trailblazers from all over the United States. The event is designed to celebrate Latina innovators whose big thoughts have made a huge impact on the Latino community, and humanity at large.

The most recent group of Latina innovators to join the LATINAS THINK BIGevent’s premiere lineup are Drs. Juana Cuevas, Lissette Lugo, and Monica Simons, founders of  Every Woman Wellness.

Their Big Idea

With more than 20 years of experience between them, Dr. Juanas Cuevas, Dr. Lissette Lugo and Dr. Monica Simons opened Every Projet-Every-Woman-Wellness3Woman Wellness in 2012, motivated by a mission to redefine the gynecological experience and cater to every aspect of a woman’s needs – physical, emotional, and aesthetic.  As women, doctors and entrepreneurs, this trailblazing trio understand that if you want to provide full-service health and wellness treatment for women, you have to think outside the box–you have to think BIG! Their big idea was to combine traditional, holistic and aesthetic wellness services for women, making Every Woman Wellness a haven and retreat for every woman, indeed!

Every Woman Wellness currently offers gynecological care, aesthetic treatments and complementary wellness services such as massage therapy, acupuncture and weight management counseling.
